Medicine Cabinets

This installation was part of my recent show at Canal Gallery in Holyoke, MA, titled “Healing Disparities: The Condition of Embodiment”. I knitted the five most popular psychoactive pharmaceuticals and placed them inside of medicine cabinets. I replaced the mirrors on each cabinet with Plexiglas and put fluorescent lights inside, turning them into light boxes/display cases. The graphics on the background of the cabinets show the molecular structure of each pill contained within.


About Ben Cuevas

Ben Cuevas is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist whose work spans a wide range of mediums including installation, sculpture, fiber, photography, video, performance, and sound. Often incorporating several of these elements into any given piece, he makes use of digital media as a means of documentation. In light of its pluralistic qualities, he sees his work as a reflection on the condition of embodiment, exploring what it means to have a body, to inhabit a body, to be a body incarnated in, and interacting with this world.
